Under the agreement, Canada will consider your U.S. social security loans acquired after 1951 and 18 years, as well as periods of stay in Canada after 1951 and 18 years, as the OAS residency requirements. However, to be entitled to have your U.S. credits counted, you must have been in Canada for at least one year after 1951 and 18 years. India-Canada, now have a social security agreement since August 2015. Where do you stand? Are you caught in the middle of this unique problem? You are not alone in your quest for a path forward.

Someone told me that she could get her old age pension, even if it is not a contracting country, but they will deduct the 30% of the tax.
She will be 82 in June. I read the pensions page, but I did not confirm anything. Can you tell me how it works? Thanks to Hi Doug, I moved from Romania to Canada in 1996. Canada has signed social security agreements with Romania. I am 59 years old and intend to retire at 65. I have a question about the postponement of the OAS; Most of the available information indicates: For each month of “valid” deferral, your OAS pension is increased by 0.6%. The maximum time is 5 years, which would increase your OAS pension by 36%. Good Morning June – You should be able to qualify for Social Security in the United States, in accordance with the agreement, and this will not diminish your right to the CPC or the OAS. A list of countries with which the United States currently has totalization agreements and copies of these agreements can be accessed under U.S. international social security agreements. You can also qualify for a partial agreement of the OAS. The OAS is approximately $15.00 per month for each year of stay in Canada after the age of 18 and before receiving the OAS.
Maintaining the OAS has no influence on U.S. social benefits. Under the agreement, U.S. Social Security loans made after 1965 may be considered, with CPP or QPP work credits, to meet, where appropriate, minimum CPC or DPP disability or survival requirements. However, in order to have the right to have your U.S. assets counted, you must have earned at least one year of credit under the CPC or QPP. It is not necessary to consider U.S. Social Security credits in determining eligibility for CPP or QPP pension benefits, since anyone who has contributed at least to either plan may be eligible for an old age pension at age 65 or a reduced old-age pension from age 60. If you disagree with the decision on your entitlement to benefits under the agreement, contact a U.S. Social Security office or a Canadian social security office.
The people there can tell you what you need to do to appeal the decision. I suggest that you wait until they have approved or rejected your OAS application and see when you have come to the conclusion that you reside in Canada.
